Metis provide Lead Local Flood Authorities (LLFAs) with a tailored service through inhouse support and project work. LLFAs benefit from our in depth understanding of the roles and responsibilities set out in the Flood and Water Management Act 2010. Our consultants have experience carrying out the day-to-day role of the Council Officers, reinforced by their wider understanding of the other risk management authorities, various funding sources and the process in which projects must progress to access external funding. Metis’ consultants use their local knowledge to identify areas at risk of flooding, carry out investigations and initial assessments, conduct detailed hydraulic modelling and progress alleviation schemes through all the design stages. Our environmental and civil engineers have the skills and experience to cover all aspects of the LLFA role.
